Remember a while ago I uploaded some promotional items from the 60's/70's designed to promote the "Big 3" USA TV network shows to viewers, advertising people, and network affiliates? I wonder, if it is worth it for somebody to check each of the shows promoted, check if any managed to "slip through the cracks" and become PD. If it could happen to "Dusty's Trail", then there is a slight chance some of the shows promoted may have become PD.

If any are PD, someone could post such info and our lovely group of uploaders can search for copies.

Not a bad idea,but Dusty's Trail was syndicated,and wasnt on any of the big 3 networks.Besides,the owners might have let it slip into PD,out of shame of claiming it as theirs.

Yeah: The fact the show was syndicated, and by a company that technically no longer exists ("Metromedia") may have something to do with it. I still feel it is worth a try to search each of the more obscure shows though.
